In the current context of the knowledge society, many university campuses in São Paulo cities are expected to undergo a transformation process in the coming decades, with the installation around them of research and development institutes, innovation hubs and high technology companies. These new knowledge-based urban areas will demand a series of equipment and infrastructure, such as housing, services, sanitation, open spaces for public use, among others. Considering their location, typically in urban fringes, at the interface with agricultural areas, natural forests fragments and other preexistences that are generally disconnected from consolidated urban areas, and due to the current scenario of climate change, ecosystem destruction and economic and social crisis, this transformation will face several challenges, requiring new methods and tools for urban planning. In line with the Sustainable Development Goals, this research project aims to study these issues through the following cross-cutting thematic axes: technologies, governance, public policies, urban regulation, circular/donut economy, mitigation of gentrification and ecological paradigm. The project builds on the work started in 2020 with the creation of a lato sensu postgraduate program at FECFAU aimed at studying the implementation of the Hub for Sustainable Development (HIDS), in which Unicamp's Barão Geraldo campus is located. The methodological procedures will include, in the first three years of the project, systematic literature reviews, case studies, participant observation of the project's development for HIDS, the participatory process with the communities involved and workshops to discuss concepts with focus groups. As a result, a conceptual framework will be produced on the creation of new knowledge-based urban areas, contributing to the economic, social, environmental and urban development. In the second phase of the project, this methodological process will be applied experimentally to other cities in the state of São Paulo and a new interdisciplinary inter-unit postgraduate program will be proposed at Unicamp, institutionalizing a new line of research on the subject.
